Thats Not Silly String – Robots Root 22 May 2018

The new West Coast Avengers is everything I want in a supers comic today. I’m delighted. Also one of my favorite artists currently working, and a great writer. Optimistic!

Also, for science:

  • Well thats great. They can RUN now, jump through holes in obstructions, and get back on their feet. Its cute that they aren’t admitting these are all prototype work for future cybersoldiers, and oh, by the way, I’ll be in my quite penetrable bunker.
  • I first heard the term “tank paratrooper” in the gag final punchline of a first season Ren & Stimpy. It’s even better in the real…
  • Here’s a cool video about the costume design on Shape of Water and others.
  • I had enough trouble as a kid dealing with the New Gods (as much as I adore Kirby now) so Eternals were WAY off the back for me. But hey, good luck! I’m on board if they do it right…
  • I don’t know if its because I’m traveling, or because I dislike the excessive abuse of the service animals system, but this struck me funny. I liked it.
  • Lung recently informed me he wasn’t a fan of Morena Baccarin because she has, to him, mean eyes. I’m usually focused on her lips and other bits, but anyway, that’s all neither here nor there because I’d be fully supportive of her playing Catwoman in that Gotham City Sirens film…
  • Here’s Bandai’s armored cats series, which, had they been available when I was in Japan, I’d have bought out like the whole supply.
  • Everyone needs a brutalist garden gnome, I says.
  • Tiny Superman. I’m jealous I didn’t think of it.
  • First, the new She-Ra is teased and it looks a bit stylized, so people got grumpy. Then the new Thundercats was revealed and it’s chibi so the all-srs fans freaked out. I can’t believe it. I mean, srsly. It looks great. CALM down. I actually enjoyed that behind-the-scenes featurette. Not the topknot tho.
  • best news of my day, tho? BEST news? Amazon picked up The Expanse. FFS that’s a relief u guise.
  • Courtesy of Lung, this custom operable Lego Tron Light Cycle display is dope. My favorite part is the little slab of light behind the cycle.

Finally, I leave you with the trailer to the Happytime Murders, which is proving to be as batshit crazy as I’d hoped!

Super Tole – Robots Root 5 Feb 2018

IT DOESN’T LOOK LIKE ANYTHING TO ME!!!!

I love the Super Bowl. I don’t watch the Super Bowl. But I like the ads. THE ADS!

A selection of nerd items I enjoyed…

  • I still wish the Croc Dundee stunt was a real movie I’d see the SHIT out of. But anyway. The previous trailer was actually better but this was the ‘reveal’ that surprised no one. It was almost like waiting for your lover to break up with you and then it happens and you’re almost relieved its over.
  • I said I wouldn’t watch it. I lay in my bed, tossing and turning (remember, I’m in Indonesia right now, so future) but then I did anyway. I like the Iron Man armor as realized from the concept art. I don’t get Spidey unmasking in the ring gate scene. I do love that Thanos sneer. This was less exciting than several other trailers, which doesn’t speak negatively of Avengers as much as positively of those other properties that we see the FIRST footage of, instead.
  • Another Red Sparrow trailer that chips away further at the Black Widow film to come.
  • I really like watching Dwayne Johnson. But I’m struggling with this project because leave Die Hard alone. Thanxxxx. Also I spent all day on the 63rd floor of my building, so.
  • Jurassic World Fallen Toleyou continues to trade on Chris Pratt’s charm, and it works.
  • I really enjoy the more recent Mission Impossible stuff… usually… Rogue Nation being the exception because Lung’s blueberries. Anyway, this looks looks great. You just can’t unsee the ankle shattering.
  • Holy shit, Cloverfield Paradox went to Netflix instead of theaters and is ALREADY live?!? I mean, not for me. I’m locked out regionally atm. But still. For YOU!
  • And lastly, of COURSE, the promised Solo teaser. I would have put this at the top, I was just so unprepared for how rabidly I want more Westworld. But there’s much to unpack in Solo. I’m waiting for the full trailer tomorrow. Today. Tomorrow. Gah! Anyway, so many things.

 

Meanwhile, this twitter response, which the kids today call a clap back, was awesome.
